Each Bangs Tony & Jackey salon is usually helmed by Korean hairstylists and ably assisted by Filipino hair staff which serve both as interpreter and assistant to the Korean stylists. The Filipino staff usually primps and preps the hair prior to hairstyling. A visit to any Bangs Tony & Jackey salon unfolds like clockwork – a Filipino assistant will wash your hair as the hairstylist studies the current condition of the hair and recommends an appropriate treatment.
The whole process goes in quick succession: hair is primped and washed; treatment is applied depending on preference; cut and styled then washed again before the final blow drying and styling. While there is a bit of a language barrier, the stylists usually does his or her best in explaining the process while getting feedback from the customers. There is usually less chatter amongst assistants (as opposed to local salons) and you are offered water or coffee and a stack of magazines during the long wait.
Salon interiors are usually trendy and spotless, perfect for a day of primping and pampering
Interiors are clean and often times trendy. Hair care and styling products are usually available for purchase at the salon should you prefer at-home hair care maintenance.
